I kept a bullfrog someone found. Kept him in a tank with a rock and a waterbowl. I knew from nothing about herps. This was years ago. I fed him..of course I named him Jeremiah, from my 70's self..largely raw liver and beef hearts. He lived for ten years before one of my dogs tipped his lid off and thus endith the tale of Jeremiah. Certainly mismanaged him in every way possible in retrospect, starting off with keeping him at all. Friendly, or at least easily handleable and tame. Gosh I LOVED that frog. Never forgot him.
I'd really like to buy another big young bullfrog. Anyone suggest a place that's reputable? I've never seen one in a local store, or I might have taken my chances.
I've been on the lookout for years, but this is my first public 'ask'.

If you don't like to swamp walk than let the local kids know what you're looking for & I bet they'll find you one. Bull frogs are quite plentiful. I've had several brought to me this spring, along with snakes & more painted turtles than I want to think about. I currently have several turtles that I'm getting ready to release. I went herping around my house, my back field & my bog last week.

In one afternoon I found 3 eastern milks, 2 garter snakes, a ring-neck snake, a brown snake, a red-bellied snake, 3 toads, 3 painted turtles & 6 frogs. Someone brought me a snapping turtle in a trash can last week. The turtle was so big I couldn't pick it up! We released it in the bog. This is a great year for herps as well as ticks. I also acquired a few ticks on my adventure. Fortunately none became inbedded in my flesh. Happy herping to all! snake lady
